love The Conversation articles.

Here’s some on Health:

Healthcare is really important to me. My uni degree is in Health Sciences and Occupational Therapy; I enjoy helping others. But it needs to be equitable and accessible. The govt is trying to ensure that it’s a tiered system. They seem to think we won’t notice….

and Education:

Education for all is really important. There’s been plenty of stuff written on how good education sets people up for life. Education should also be equitable and accessible also. Like Malala says – “One child, one book, and one pen can change the world”.

‘Nuff said.
